I’m currently working part-time with Plan International USA and serving as a special advisor to the Rockefeller Foundation’s Evaluation Office. I convene Technology Salons in New York City and am a co-founder of Kurante, a start-up consulting firm. Linda's posts are from her blog called "Wait...What?"

Last Friday I had the opportunity to share a panel discussion on “Designing New Narratives: from poverty porn to agency” with Leah Chung, Maharam Fellow and RISD student, and Victor Dzidzienyo, Associate Dean of the College of Engineering Architecture and Computer Sciences at Howard University. The panel was part of the “A Better World by Design” Conference planned and run by a committee of students from Brown University and the Rhode Island School of Design, here in Providence.
